\n Unexplored and Almost Unknown
funta Arenas in San Fran-
Stern, wild, and inhospitable are the
shores of Patagonia and the adjacent island
of Tierra del Fuego. There have been few
explorers who have penetrated into their
unknown interiors, and the general knowl
edge of these countries is necessarily con
fined and of no reliable value. In the mid
dle of summer the climate is cold, the winds
bitterly cold, and|snow squalls frequent, so
that the dark and long winters can be more
easily imagined than described,
In'theee inhospitable regions wander no
otadic tribes, which manage to subsist on
coat flesh and fish, bread being next to un
known, and vegetation being of the scanti-'
est. There is a-general impression that the
Patagonian is a giant. I never saw one over
five teet ten inches in height, and most of
them were much shorter and on the average
stunted. TheJfdjnales Jliave a muscular de
velopment. equal to the males, and it is
sometimes difficult to distinguish between
the sexes, owing to the masculine appear
ance of the gentler sex, the women in most:
cases sporting an incipient moustache and
beard, which on the male never grows very
Both sexes dress alike. Bleak and cold as
the climate is at best of times, the usual
dress consists of the skin of some wild ani
mal loosely wrapped around the body. Lit
tle children can be seen running naked over
the snow, their well-oiled brown skin appa
rently impervious to the biting winds.
Those savages wandering to the Chilian set
tlement of Punta Areuqs (Sandy Point)
have often been presented with various ar
ticles of clothing, but as a rule the aborigi
ne discards shirts and trousers upon the first
opportunity. The Valparaiso sewing cir
cles industriously continue contributing
boxfuls of clothing, but it is a mystery
what becomes of the garments. Most likely
there are second-hand dealers who barter
rum for the “duds.”
As the Patagonian tribes are nomadic,
their temporay dwellings consist of the
branches of-trees interwoven so as to form
a basket-work defense against the weather.
Skins, old sails and blankets also give a shel
ter which seems to content the tenants, who
are notoriously indifferent to the comforts
or discomforts of home. Fish, of course,
forms the staple food, and it is thought that
few inhabitants are in the interior, most
living near the sea for the sake of its food
and the wreckage which occasionally strews
Many Horn bound vessels which have
never been heard of have doubtless been
lost on the Patagonian and Fuegan coasts,
and nearly every native has some trophy
cast up by the sea on their iron shores.
There is a story of a crew having succeeded
in getting ashore from a stranded vessel and
being murdered by the savages, with the
exception of the Captain’s wife, who is said
to be still alive in the interior, dragging out
a miserable existence as the wife of some
Steamers passing through the Straits of
Magellan are often met by the canoes of
Indians, with women paddling, who eagerly
look for ship’s bread or any other article
thrown them. I noticed one set of Indians
had a handsome ship’s boat, said to have be
longed to some foundered vessel.
The Patagonians are just one step re
moved from Cannibals, but their neighbors
—the Fuegans—are said to enjoy human
flesh, and indulge in dreadful orgies over
any prisoners or shipwrecked sailors who fall
into their hands. The Terre del Fuegans
represent the lowest type of humanity on
the globe. They have no deity, no moral
code, not one custom or habit which can be
called intelligent. Of largo stature, some
imposingly so, they are perfectly brutish in
their instincts, without any redeeming at
tributes which belong to the brute creation.
On this terrible mass of barbarism the
Church of England Missionary Society has
tried to make some impression. The mis
sionary, Mr. Bridge, has devoted his whole
life to try and organize some kind of order
among them. They have been taught to
grow cereals and build houses, and two of
the natives were taken to London, but the
food work only extends for a short distance
evond the mission settlement.
Tierra del Fuego, from Magellan to Capo
Horn, is a sea of mountains. Wild animals
are rare and the onlylbirds aro the albatross,
the sea gull, and the Cape pigeon. Half the
missing vessels reported which have to go
around the Horn are supposed to be lost on
this barren island and nobody ever lives to
tell the tale.
Crossing over to Patagonia, we have Punta
Arenas, more generally known as Sandy
Point, a Chilian penal settlement and coal
ing station Among the milder tempered
and more intelligent Patagonians life in this
little town, though lonely, is not without its
attractions. The main street boasts of some
substantial houses; there is a fort, Govern
or’s residence, convict barracks and a re
spectable custom house and jetty. The in
habitants (aiwut 500) are a mixed population
of Scotch, Chilian, English ana natives.
Most of the English-speaking part of the
settlement represent different houses in the
fur trade. The Governor is polite and hos
pitable and is always anxious to amuse the
casual visitor to the best of his ability. A
collection of rare skims, feathers and ostrich
eggs meets the eye in every house.
The convict establishment is well con
ducted and the prisoners have a great deal of
liberty. Here every nationality under the
sun is represented, most of the foreigners
undergoing their sentences for embezzle
ment or fraud. Tho Chilians punish the
above offenses very severely—a ten-year
sentence being considered light. The even
ings are passed in singing and dancing
to the music of the übiquitous guitar.
Kwr tile town are coal mines which pro
duce a tolerably good fuel, but all minerals
in this large country are waiting for capital
and hardy workers who can defy hardship
and brave dangers. Pntegonia is essential
ly a mineral country. On the eastern coast
the Argentine Republic encourages miners
with liberal concessions and valuable privi
leges, the result being the extraction of gold
iu considerable quantities by rude means
aud primitive methods. In this country
there is virgin soil to work on, and in this
respect it should offer better inducements
than the abandoned mines of Peru and
Bolivia, in which countries every native is
a miner by instinct ami experience.
Thu Chilian government, ever liberal in
encouraging capital and immigration,
would welcome and aid any enterprise
which would tend to the opening up of mys
terious Patagonia. The interior of the
country consists of tablelands, with several
ranges of hills trending in a Northwesterly
direction. Innumerable lakes and streams
are to be met with, which in the winter
months are frozen up. The climate is about
the same as the South of Alaska.
Sandy Point is six days’ steam from Val
paraiso by tlie fast mail boats. The scenery
of the Straits of Magellan and Smith's Sound
is magniiicent. Vegetation grows from the
waters edge, terrace above terrace, their
straight linos ever and anon broken
by some lieautiful inlet into which
on enormous glacier stretches, and
the background composed of purple;
then snow-clad mountains whicli throw
Swiss Alps Pyrenees into
insignificance, On a summer day such
views keep,the traveler on deck from dawn
till evoning, every turn and twist of the
straits unfolding now panoramic effects to
the artistic eye, as the steamer threads its
way through intricate channels beyond
soundings in some places, miles in breadth
one moment, so narrow another that the
trees almost touch the yards of the vessel
on either side.

A WONDERFUL CORN DOCTOR.
Hia Singular Method of Proving the
Value of His Salve.
From the London Telegraph.
As though bent on business that would
admit of no delay, a smart mail phaeton, in
which were a well-dressed man and a boy in
hvery, might recently have been seen to
draw up in a hurry at a street corner in the
Goswell road, and proceed to make prepara
j£EL°£jS ’Wkable a kind that, ere as
SS2L^hs^ had^ laps ® a nd ’ at least twenty
persons had stopped to look on. The lad,
hnvmg ahghted, stood at the horse’s head!
wtuie the gentleman first of all withdrew
irom beneath the driving seat what looked
a 9? 8 * 1 bo* of birge size, and which he'
i Ne *t, bo Produced a shfflalah, and, tak
ng off his hat and turning back his cuffs,.
he proceeded to wield it in a defiant manner,
finally bringing it down with a sounding
thwack on the lid of the japanned box.
..During these singular preliminaries he had
not spoken one word. He continued to tap
the in grim silence, and, mean
while, the crowd about him had rapidly in
creased. Then, his countenance gradually
relaxing to an expression of affability, he
laid aside the shillalah and remarked:
'Ladies and gentlemen, permit me to intro
duce myself to you as the most famous
chiropodist in Europe!”
There was a general laugh at this, and a
movement betokening rapid dispersion ou
the part of his audience; but he promptly'
arreted them by holding up one hand, and
poising the bludgeon in the other. “Stop a
minute, or you will miss an exhibition that,
though I have given it hundreds of times in
France, Germany and America, is a novelty
m the streets of London. When I just now
remarked that I was the most famous
chiropodist in Europe, or anywhere else hi
the civilized wqrld, I did not use the words
as mere showmen’s patter. I stand here to
prove it—to stand or fall literacy on the
truth or falsehood of my assertion. To fall,
ladies and gentlemen”—and down
came the shillalah with a
resounding ring on the lid of the irou box—
“by as hard a blow as the strongest man
among you can strike on my unprotected,
head with this little bit of timber. You*
laugh, gentlemen! You can afford to, since
it is not your eraniums that are in jeopardy,
and I cannot quarrel with you if it is your
opinion that, if 1 am fool enough to get my
skull cracked through making an empty
boast, it serves ine right. But words with
out deeds are but idle wind. The proof is
the thing, and now for it. Most of those
I see around me are working men. and I
have no doubt that many of you are afflicted
with that bane of human happiness—corns.
I don’t seek for a mild case. What I want
to operate on, on the spot, and without
further parley or preparation, is the worst
specimen of a corn that ever tormented a
toe. Let the fortunate possessor of that
corn step forward. Let him step up here
into my phaeton—l have my implements
with me—and with all eyes on me I will ex
tract his corn, and that withbut causing
him the slightest pain. And how, you ask
me, will I convince you that the operation
is a painless one? I will tell you. The per
son who takes my word, and of whom I
will not ask a fee or a single farthing, shall
hold in his right hand this bludgeon while I
‘am relieving him, if I hurt him in the least
—in the very least, mark me—l give him
.full and free permission to hit me over the
head with it as hard as he is able to.”
1 saw no reason for suspecting that it was
a confederate who responded to the start
ling proposal. He was an Irishman, and
seemingly by occupation a bricklayer’s
laborer, and though no doubt he was plagued
with a bad corn, it is not impossible that an
itching to handle the shillalah acted as an
irresistible incentive to his accepting the
bold chiropodist’s challenge. Unlacing his
heavy boot, which was slit at the side, he
mounted the phaeton, and the “little bit of
timber” was at once politely handed to him,
and with a serio-comic twinkle in his eyes
the Irishman grasped it, first spitting in his
fist. The corn doctor examined the affected
toe through a magnifying glass, and, shrug
ging his shoulders, observed: ‘Tasked for
a tough specimen, and, by George, I’ve got
But he showed no disposition to back out
of his bargain. Producing his knives, he
knelt down, which brought the back of his
head immediately under the uplifted shil
lalah. There were by this time at least 100
onlookers, and even the policeman, who had
come up evidently with the intention of
making the crowd move on, became an in
terested spectator. But the operator stuck
unflinchingly to his task. I was not close
enough to he an eye witness of the perform
ance, but after two or three minutes of such
prodigious txertion that the veins stood out
on his perspiring forehead he rose to his feet,
holding up to public view, and impaled on
the point of his lancet, what might or might
not nave been a corn—a something as large
as a pea, with thready roots to it.
“Did I hurt you?” he demanded of the
Irishman. “Divil a bit,” was the delighted
patient’s reply, “and the pain’s clane gone.”
“Of coarse it has, and will never come
back again. And now, ladies and gentle
men, perhaps you think I am going to call
up the next person who wished to
be operated on. I would do so, but I can
be of greater benefit to you. I can sell
you a salve (here he unlocked the iron
chest) that will eradicate your corns as
completely as though they were extracted
with the knife, and without the danger at
tending that process, and the price is only
twopence the box. I have risked a broken
head to prove to you that I am not a quack,
but a skilled professional, and you will
please yourself as to whether you will risk
twopence in buying what I have to sell
you.” In less than a quarter of an hour
about fortv boxes were disposed of, and
with the monev thus neatly netted the com
c-urer rattled off in the mail phaeton to seek
QUEER PHENOMENON EXPLAINED.
How Dawho Lake Was Poisoned By
a Hail Storm.
From a Herald Special.
Columbia, S. C., June 25.—Tho story of
the poisoning of Dawho lake, Georgetown
county, by a hail storm, us recently de
scribed, has been corroborated in every par
ticuiar by a prominent citizen of George
town who has investigated the matter at
of Gen. Grecly, chief of tho
A dense mass of black gum trees surround
the lake on all sides. It is well known that
the leaves of those trees are strongly impreg
nated with tannic acid. It has also been as
certained that the bottom of the lake con
tains a slight deposit of iron. The poisoning
of the water, therefore, is thus explaained:
The bail storm tilled the lako with bruised
leaves and small branches from the trees,
the tannic acid emanating from which min
gled with tho iron and formed tannate of
iron causing the water to turn black as ink
and Litter as quinine and poisoning the fish
'specie of the fish inhabiting this
lake survived the singular disaster, and that
was the mud thh, which buried itself in the
nmd at tho bottom aud thus escaped the ef
fects of tho poison. , , .
The stench arising from the mass of dead
and rotten fish is described as fearful. Tho
’thousands of buzzards in taking their de
parture in tho evening dor their roosting
nlace after a day’s feast are described as
nmking a noise similar to that of an ap-
end of Dawho Lake, aljout half a
mile distant, is a small lake in which num
ber, offish abound, .but which upni exami
nu iif in show no signs of the hailstorm

the belief that the direct cause of tho dis
aster to tho fish is due to the hailstorm.

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY. JUNE 29. 18^Z1
BESIEGED BY A WILD MANIAC.
A Decidedly Unoomfortable Night for
the Park Family.
A dispatch from Park Ridge, N. J., to
the New York World says: William Park
and his family narrowly escaped death last
night at the hands of an insane man, Charles
Sage, who was dismissed last week from the
asylum for the insane at Flat bush, L. 1.,
supposed to be cured .from on attack of in
sanity that came on about a year ago.
Park, whose wife is a sister to Sage, invited
the latter to come to his home here, about
a mile from Park Ridge station, hoping that
the country air would do him good.
The room occupied by Sage was on the
ground floor, adjoining’ that used by Mr.
Park, his wife and one child. To get from
the one room to the other it is necessary to
go through the kitchen and dining-room.
A noise in one of these rooms between 1 and
2 o’clock last night awakened Mr. Park,
and when he got his eyes opened and ac
customed to the dim light of the night lamp
he saw Sage standing at the edge of the bed,
with his arm raised and a large butcher
knife, with a 13-inch blade, grasped in his
hand. The man hesitated to strike until
Park, recovering from his first fright, said:
“Charlie, do you want anything?”
The head of the bed stood toward and near
the door of the room, which opened inward,
so that from Park’s position be could easily
reach the edge of the door, beside which the
insane man stood. Before the latter could
reply to the question Park slammed the
door against Sage, kuocking him down.
Following up this advantage ne pushed the
prostrate man out of the room and locked
In the chamber directly over Mr. Park’s
rooms slept his wife’s sister and his eldest
daughter. Mr. Park called out to them,
telling them of the danger at hand aud di
recting them to lock and Tjarricade their
bedroom door. Sage made his way up
stairs, and when he found the door locked
he began to utter terrific yelis, cursing and
threatening those wjio lmd escaped his knife.
Returning to Mr. Park’s room, he endeav
ored to hurst in the door, but Mr. Park had
placed the bedstead against it. Sage stuck,
bis long knife several times through the
thin panels of the door, calling out:
“I will have you yet.”
While the insane man was trying to gain
an entrance Mr. Park assisted his wife aud
child out of a window, telling them to
hurry to' his nearest neighbor, Henry
Bishop. Mr. Bush and his son Alfred has
tened to the Park house, and, after consult
ing with Park, decided that the son should
go to Montvale for ’Squire Garret F. Her
ring and Constable John A. Blauvelt, while
the father assisted the two women im
prisoned upstairs. Before the arrival of the
officers the women got out of a window to
the roof of the kitchen and from there to
Wh en the officers arrived those on the
premises had captured and. disarmed the
insane man. Sage was handcuffed and
taken to the Montvale station, where papers
were made out by the ’Squire committing
him to the county jail at Hackensack for
assault. Constable Blauvelt took the pris
oner by the first train to the county seat.
By the time the man reached the jail he
seemed more quiet.
